I also notice that it take a few minute before my CPU (dual core 1.6Ghz) goes back to normal after I close the #JitsiMeet tab. Hmmmm ...
@david_ross be aware that my computer was new when the Ark was being built ...
@david_ross @strypey It breaks VPN. Virtually every web browser which has it, has it enabled by default, causing obvious security risks. I’m glad it has legitimate uses for them who want it. I’ll never want it, for anything I can see.
But yes, I suppose I ought to be grateful. Ripping out WebRTC by the roots was a nice little education in tweaking obscure options in about:config, etc. And being more sceptical of even Mozilla browser defaults.
@Hamishcampbell @strypey @david_ross I’ve never understood the “absolute safety” fallacy, myself. There is unsafe infosec and safer. It’s figleafs all the way down, an arms race of figleafs, even in crypto. And even the surveillance state doesn’t have total immediate clairvoyance. So if hiding ip foils some metadata skimmers, but not all, at least you’ve foiled probably most. It buys time and options and muddies waters. That’s all one can do anyway.
